Michael Owen predicts Everton v Watford
By Laura O’Leary
The BT Sport pundit and former Liverpool star predicted “thing will get worse” for Everton when they play Watford on Sunday.
The 37-year-old gave his opinion on how the game will go in his weekly Bet Victor blog.
He said: “I don’t expect the Hornets to leave Goodison empty-handed on Sunday given their impressive away form so far this term.
“Only Wayne Rooney and Oumar Niasse have scored a league goal for the Blues so far this term and I believe things will get worse for the club before they get better.”
Everton currently find themselves in the relegation zone of the Premier League, sitting in 18th.

The Toffees have only won two of their first 10 games, and have ended up with only eight points at this stage.
Swansea who are just outside the relegation positions in 17th are level on points with Everton but have a superior goal difference.
Everton are currently being guided by caretaker manager David Unsworth, after the club sacked manager Ronald Koeman on October 23 due to the bad start.
The Toffees have been linked with several different managers as they hunt for Koeman’s permanent replacement.
The bookies currently list Sam Allardyce as the favourite for the role, with Burnley manager Sean Dyche just behind him.
The current caretaker manager, who has yet to record a win ahead of Everton’s meeting with Lyon in the Europa League, is the fourth favourite according to SkyBet.
